Grep string but also it will show the next 5 lines

Hi experts,

I want to grep a number 9366109380 from a file but it will also show me the next 5 lines. Below is the example-

when i grep 989366109380, i can also see the next 5 lines.

Line 1. <fullOperation>MAKE:NUMBER:9366109380:PPAY2;</fullOperation>
Line 2. <starttime>20081003000047</starttime>
Line 3. <stoptime>20081003000047</stoptime>
Line 4. <fullResult>940120105;;</fullResult>
Line 5. <status>FAILED</status>

Please help..

First, try GNU "grep -A 5 989366109380". If you don't have and can't get GNU grep (fileutils package), then try:

Code:
awk '/989366109380/,printed==5 { ++printed; print; }'

There are probably other solutions with sed.
# 3  
awk '/989366109380/,printed==5 { ++printed; print; }'

above not giving any output Smilie

pleaese tell me other way??

1. Your sample input gave a different number than the one I used. Did you use the right number??
2. Did you provide an input filename?
# 5  
I guess you mean printed==4; also, the example has 9366109380 (remove the first two digits from the awk script)
# 6  
check the -A option of grep..Example shown below...Grepped on "bash" keyword and printed next 5 lines.

Code:
[root@iqcharlie nua7]# grep -A 5 bash create_current.conf 
#!/bin/bash
echo "Please enter the hostname"
read hostname
echo "Please enter the ipaddress"
read ip
echo "Please enter the DB server name"
